Born in San Jose, Ca in 1965, his Dad moved the entire family to Paradise, Ca in 1967 to be closer to prime fly fishing venues, and to raise his family in the spectacular conifer forests of Northern California.

Jon’s Dad, Bob Baiocchi, was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Hall of Fame in 1999, and was a major influence in helping Jon hone his fly fishing skills at a very young age. Read an article about Bob Baiocchi’s life here and his decades-long conservation battle entitled “The Good Fight” by Tom Martens of California Fly Fisher Magazine.

After finishing high school, Jon opted out of college to pursue a career as a professional snowboarder, competing at a national level, starring in feature movies, and working with manufacturers in their research and development programs. After his career ended in 1993, Jon focused entirely on fly fishing, and honing the intricate details of his home waters.

Jon now owns and operates Baiocchi’s Troutfitters guide service in Northern California where he has been guiding for the last 21 years. He has a reputation as a very hard working guide that’s been trained by some of fly fishing’s best known anglers, both past and present. His enthusiasm for the sport is contagious, and combined with his simple approach to teaching gives students the skills needed to be successful on all types of water. Moved by all things flora and fauna his passion for such is never ending. Sharing the knowledge with others is of the greatest importance to him now, and too see others progress with their skills, and reach the next level in fly fishing fulfills his life. It’s the legacy his father left him, and a cherished tradition that Jon will continue in his honor.

His locations for guiding include Lake Davis, the Wild & Scenic Middle Fork Feather River, Frenchman Lake, the North Fork Yuba River, The Big & Little Truckee Rivers, The Lower Yuba River, and many secluded creeks in Eastern Plumas County. Jon’s philosophy on fly fishing is to keep it simple, be confident in your presentation, and enjoy the great outdoors. His favorite game is stalking and sight fishing to large trout in shallow water whether it is a river, or a still water.

Jon is a proud member of The Gold Country Fly Fishers Club and the Tahoe Truckee Fly Fishers.

Jon serves on the Board of Directors for Truckee Trout Unlimited chapter #103.
